Catherine Called Birdy by Karen Cushman [FIRST PRINTING]

  • $20.00


Hardcover with dust jacket.  Like new. 

Catherine feels trapped. Her father is determined to marry her off to a rich man--any rich man, no matter how awful.  But by wit, trickery, and luck, Catherine manages to send several would-be husbands packing. Then a shaggy-bearded suitor from the north comes to call--by far the oldest, ugliest, most revolting suitor of them all.  Unfortunately, he is also the richest. 

Can a sharp-tongued, high-spirited, clever young maiden with a mind of her own actually lose the battle against an ill-mannered, piglike lord and an unimaginative, greedy toad of a father?  Deus! Not if Catherine has anything to say about it!
